The most precious life giving thing one can give another
is to be grateful.
I ground myself by remembering all the tough times.
I look back and try and find all that was good in those hard times.
If it weren't for those hard times I don't know just how much I would
appreciate the good ones.
Joyful moments.. plenty to recall.
I remember fondly how my son's tiny hand wrapped around my pinkie.
I still treasure the memory of the beuatiful little eyes looking
up at me fro his crib.
My Viejita had made him a pair of Raggidy Ann,
and Raggidy Andy dolls.
Although we probably didn't call them that.
I remember how beautiful his Mother looked.
I remember the Mariachis playing at the church wedding,
and later at the reception.
But I am getting off the subject.
They know too well that "they" have been a part of this
I am grateful for my family, loved ones, and the many friends
I have met along the way.
Most of all I am thankful for the opportunties to continue to serve others.
I am also grateful for them.
Make it a gratefull día!
